DESCRIPTION

       The r.out.xyz module exports a raster map as a list of x,y,z values  into  an  ASCII  text
       file.

NOTES

       This  module will by default not export x,y coordinates for raster cells containing a NULL
       value. This includes cells masked by a raster MASK.  Using the flag -i also  these  raster
       cells will be included in the exported data.

       This  module,  as  all GRASS raster modules, will export cells based on the current region
       settings. See the g.region module for details.

       The r.out.ascii module should be used to export an array (of size row x column) containing
       z values.

       r.out.xyz  can combine several input raster maps, which can be convenient when it comes to
       e.g. produce ASCII point cloud files.

       r.out.xyz is simply a front-end to "r.stats -1g[n]".

EXAMPLES

       In this example, a LiDAR elevation map in the North Carolina sample  dataset  location  is
       exported to CSV format.
       g.region raster=elev_lid792_1m -p
       r.out.xyz input=elev_lid792_1m output=elev_lid792_1m.csv separator=","

       In  this  example,  elevation data from the North Carolina dataset are exported along with
       R,G,B triplet of the related orthophoto into a combined file (requires the import  of  the
       supplementary high-resolution color orthophoto, here called "ortho2010_t792"):
       g.region raster=elev_lid792_1m res=1 -a -p
       r.out.xyz input=elev_lid792_1m,ortho2010_t792.red,ortho2010_t792.green,ortho2010_t792.blue \
               separator=space output=pointcloud.asc
       # validate: X Y Z R G B
       head -n 3 pointcloud.asc
       638300.5 220749.5 126.338218689 78 84 71
       638301.5 220749.5 126.3381958008 93 101 86
       638302.5 220749.5 126.3414840698 68 77 59

TODO

       Implement this script as a r.out.ascii option?
